Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 40 - Fairies and use at least 2 paper punches

Over at Crafty Cardmakers this week is set by Gill.  We are sponsored by the lovely Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 voucher for her online shop (thanks Joanna).
For this challenge I got out my Sweet Pea stamp by Ching-Chou Kuik called Forest Blue.  I watercoloured her with my Whispers Pens and added sparkle with Sakura Stardust pens.  I added some background with a little Hero Arts Graceful Leaves stamp and the DP is some 12x12 paper from Dovecraft (Kate Knight's Aquamarine Floral Prints).  For the punches I used my Daisy Geo Punch to make the lacy strip behind the image and my EK Success Corner Adorner to fix the image to it's mat.  I added swirls (Sizzix Decorative Flourishes), a butterfly sticker which was stuck to holographic card, ribbon and flowers from my stash and some diamond  bling to the swirls.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me - Anything with wings
Creative Craft World - Square card
Bunny Zoe - Flowers
Sparkles Forum - Fairies

So pretty! I love that stamp - she's so delicate-looking, and the soft colours you've used are just perfect for her.
